Google Nexus X (mock up) compared to other flagships on video: iPhone 6, Nexus 5, BlackBerry Passport, etc
Expected to be officially introduced later this month, the Google Nexus X will be a giant smartphone - the largest Nexus handset to date. That’s because it’s going to sport a massive 5.9-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), which is bigger than most displays that current flagship smartphones are offering.

Yesterday, we saw a series of renders that supposedly depict the real Nexus X. Now, someone took the time to make a video based on those renders, and compare the alleged Nexus X to lots of other flagship handsets. As you’ll see in the video (embedded below), the upcoming Nexus is compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, Google Nexus 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and even to some BlackBerries - including the brand new Passport. Of course, we can’t be sure that this is exactly what the Nexus X will look like next to all these smartphones. For example, we think it’s going to be slightly larger than the Galaxy Note 3 - although the video suggests the devices are about the same size.

In any case, it’s clear that the Nexus X will be larger that some people want. Manufactured by Motorola (and also know as the Nexus 6), the upcoming handset should be powered by a Snapdragon 805 processor, further featuring a 13 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a 3200 mAh battery, and Android L.

Ohh my if this mock turns to be truthful can you imagine a 5.9" 1440p QHD screen beast, that is smaller than the iPhone 6 Plus at 5.5". Wow, I am so hopping this comes out for Verizon Wireless. This is actually like a dream come true. I love the phabet, & this Nexus 6 is EVERYTHING I wanted & thensome. I am completely amazed. If Google & Motorola ACTUALLY pull this off, this might be one of the best phones ever made! Also just my 2 cents... I see videos just fine on

It wasn't playing for me either in Chrome but I mistakenly pressed on the video without touching the red play button and it worked.

I noticed something interesting on that. When I hit the play button in the center of the playback screen, nothing happens, but when I touch it off to the side (in the blank area) it works. Try that and see.

If Nexus 6 > $400 = no Nexus for me this year. Period.

....OK? But is there any other alternative even at the $400 price point?

OnePlus One.

Used to be. The Nexus 6 outclasses it in raw specs. Not to mention other incentives like the "Nexus experience"

how does it outclasses it if all we heard are speculations, nothing concrete. the onplus has amazing battery life and the nexus has never lived up to that statement, now design is also part of it the oneplus one has a nice design language and this design from the nexus is uninspiring. Granted they do get more updates that any other android because of the pure google experience but oneplus gets updates from CM which gives you more than just the nexus experience.

I said: "in raw specs" which is true. The OnePlus One can't beat the N6 in any spec (camera maybe). And since were talking about enthusiasts here, specs do matter. And yes the it does run CM which is worlds better then any OEM favor. But to be fair it's still not the full experience and it's not like the N6 can't have CM either... Your battery life claim is true for previous Nexus devices. However we've seen at I/O this year that Google is putting more work into battery life. Since N6 will be running with Project Volta + a 3200 mAh battery pack. The Nexus 6 should also win here. As for design. You say it's uninspiring, I say it's innovate because [if the leaks are true] then they managed to pack a 5.9" display into a body that's not much larger than the One itself. Tl;dr - The One is an 2014 flagship killer. The Nexus 6 is an glimpse into 2015 flagships.

speculation speculations, one thing you got right, the oneplus did kill most flagships this year. killed xperia z2/z3 in price killed iphone/m8/galaxy s5/g3 in battery life and design

battery life maybe but design is subjective , i like m8 better .

You can't just pick and choose what you want for your examples. The z3 you can't beat for the batterylife. the OnePlus had a shamble of a release and is actually quite unstable running cm from my understanding. Plus I dont think it has a better design that the iPhone, sorry. Yes it beat the flagships one 1 or 2 areas but it wasn't a real competitor like the Nexus 5.

42. eSkiip

Yup, if the leaks are true a 5.9" screen the size of a 6 Plus. That's quite amazing.

Don't you remember the instability problems he OnePlus had? PLus it was 2014, Nexus X is a 2015 phablet flagship.

45. sniper1087

the instability was CM which has already been fixed by my understanding and the nexus "2015 phablet flagship" claim is a long stretch, nexus has never been able to keep up with the flagships from the year after and the same thing happened to the nexus 5, the specs are outdated by january/february when the new ones get announced with faster processors, better camera and better display. I cannot say I am right but if history does it justice people will be let down because of all the hyping with no actual proof of specs.

looks compact for 5.9 inch but I would rather N5 with large battery

don't expect the nexusx to be priced the same as nexus 5. I think google would be releasing 2 phones this year. Nexus X with full specs for at least $500. nexus 6 would probably debut this november with either a passable battery or a camera for $450
